Today, Facebook launched a new line of reactions…so you aren’t stuck just “liking” things anymore (like an animal). You know you’ve seen the cries for reform…Someone posts a picture of their adorable children, prompting everyone to comment, “OMG!!!! Where is the LOVE button!?” Well that day is here. You can now react by choosing Like, Love, Wow, Laughter, Sadness and Anger. Sort of like the Seven Dwarfs, except we’re missing Dopey. Which would probably be the most important reaction and I’m not sure how that was overlooked. Second only to a “Validation” button.
Choosing a reaction is as simple as clicking the “Like” button…so there isn’t any “extra” work involved…Personally, I like having options…and I’m sure there will be more to come. In fact, we may not need words at all in the future.
